Usually black spots on combs are dried blood and indicate that she has been pecked by another chicken, possibly during a pecking order dispute.
Bumpy legs sound like scaly leg mites. You need to slather them in oil or grease, like Vaseline or coconut oil every 2-3 days for a couple of weeks to treat for leg mites.
